installing flash plugin for firefox?

when anything that is flash comes up, I just get the missing plugin, click here to install, go through the the steps, accept, and then it says installing, but nothing ever happens. Any ideas?

Go to macromedia's website, download flash, exit firefox, install flash, re-start firefox and you're done.

What it's hanging on, I think, is because the new 1.0.1 version might be reporting that it's not compatible with software for the 1.0 version. I get this with extension updates as well. 1.0.1 had to be released a lot sooner than expected, to plug a hole found where someone could make a page that will create and execute a batch file on your local drive, and I think they just haven't updated their extension/plugin database to sync it with the latest version. I've heard there was supposed to be an official 1.0.1 release sometime this month, which I assume is when the database will be synced as well.
